peterman....I haven't gotten a call back from him either.

I'm for sure wanting 2 of the small rounds just like tblume had at the meeting b'fore last. IIRC those were "floods". I'm going more for a "driving light" concept and wanting to get light out to the side...a little off center...to help spot the 'mobile venison'. In other words I'm thinking I don't be wanting "spots"....although I've seen them a time or two after a particularly successful meeting with Mr. Bushmill's.

those spots are more flood than you'd think- 30 degree spread. I'd actually prefer the spots in a higher output- but the cost is a little prohibitive currently, even as discounted as they are.

I spoke with Matt again later last night; him and Ryan are looking to stock the more popular size/output/cost lights but need to get some venture capitol in order to do it- I'm not suggesting a buy in to their start-up, but a group buy would definitely be a shot in the arm for them, and maybe as a preferred customer we'll enjoy some benefits in the future.

Just a thought.

I'm up for discussion and maybe the boys can visit with us wednesday to better 'splain.

That'd be swell and....as is the case any time a new business is...."courting potential customers".....they'd want to buy food/drinks for everyone. (what?....it's worth a try)

^^^^ Come'on Mike, if you played less with ex-phone guys and drank more beer with us at the Pad on Wednesdays you would know that Chex has introduced us to "sharing our feelings" around a nice Vegan dish of vegtables with smashed up bean shit.

FYI- I just heard back from Ryan. He said he and Matt would love to show up Wednesday to answer any questions and get the order ball rolling. (sorry tblume...didn't mean to horn in on the party planner position)

I told him I was for sure down with 2 lights, and I thought peterman was as well, but I didn't want to commit other guy's $'s.

I forgot to ask him about the free Hummus Feed after the sales presentation.....................(bastards).

LIGHTS!

let's git some!
too bad the FF's up in the 'city' can't see the awesome display of lumens, and join in on a group buy,(unless they were here on wendysday,or sent an emissary,),but maybe a trip up there might fill out an order for a full box!
I don't need them for night riding, because I don't much ride at night,,but for visibility on daily roads,,they will serve well.
BigBob wondered about a red lens, and using one as a rear light,,I said no,,damn cars will hit you from the rear, blinded by the red light!

With Washington passing both the recreational marijuana and gay marriage:ymca laws (not that there is anything wrong with either), I'm surprised there is anyone left in Eugene.
